Unforgettable experience!

My husband and I stayed at Gull cottage for our 5th wedding anniversary. It was our first time on Tybee island and visiting Savannah. We deeply enjoyed our time here at Gull cottage. It was beautiful, comfortable, unique, and so relaxing. The only slightly negative thing we have to say, is that we didn't like having to carry around the gate opener. B/C there is no gate where we could we just walk out. It's Tybee so we wanted to walk/bike most everywhere to avoid paying for parking. Which we did do, we just didn't like having to carry around the gate opener to get onto the private property. Which if you lost you had to pay to replace. But it's still not a deal breaker for Gull cottage. Very nice to have private access to a beautiful, quieter beach. We have fallen in love with Tybee! It was so relaxing sitting in the chairs on the sand and listening to the waves. The cottage is also close to a lot on the island. Our door lock batteries died, so we called TVR and they quickly sent someone out, easy quick fix! We rented bikes and just had a great time! We'll be back and are likely to us TVR again. :)

Great Anniversary Getaway

The historic cottage is just perfect for two people wanting a getaway from the hustle and bustle of the world. We loved the short walk to the beach, though not private it was the next best thing! The yard area was a nice and private area to sit and enjoy the sound of the water and birds while still seeming to be on the beach. We love Tybee and all the wonderful eateries for some great seafood. The cottage property is just next to the fishing pier and we were a bit skeptical of how that would affect our quiet time; however, it did not intrude on our stay as the people were very respectful of the area. Overall we had an enjoyable vacation with much needed rest in a very sweet location.

Beautiful Cottage Stay
Another great stay at Gull Cottage thanks to TVR! The location was clean, ready for us and most important- a beautiful location. We can walk to AJ's, Spanky's, Fannie's and other Tybee favorites. It also has great beach access and an easy and lovely walk to The Point to watch the ocean tide meet the Back River as the sand bar disappears. Gull Cottage has the perfect Back River location and provides gorgeous views for an intimate stay. The updated kitchen, bathroom and bedroom provides plenty of room for a couple looking for a quiet getaway. We love this place and will be back. TVR remains our Tybee go-to for our rentals- they are always good to our family- they even were helpful with accidental booking overlap issue! Great service as always. Thanks, TVR! Take a chance and stay here- you will love it!

Incredible cottage for a couple.

This was our first time on Tybee Island, and needless to say we will be back next year to the same cottage. Gull Cottage is the absolute perfect size for a couple. It has all the amenities you need for a great holiday. Fully stocked kitchen, washer/dryer. Gated driveway and private parking space. Cottage is about 10 or so yards from main house (which is beautiful and huge) Also public beach access and fishing pier access is right on other side of gate entrance. Both of those thing being said I'm not sure if either (proximity of house and public beach access) would pose a problem during peak season. I love my privacy so we went in December. Weather was perfect for beach walks, shell hunting etc etc. Main house was empty and very few people used the beach access. Also The Crab Shack and AJ's Dockside are a must. A++++++ rating for Tybee and Gull Cottage.

Gull Cottage is a unique, romantic, and beautiful place. The location on the serene river is breathtaking! A stroll down the beach will take you to the ocean where the sandbar reveals all kinds of treasures. Gull Cottage is clean and comfortable, fully appointed, and in the perfect location on the island.

We had a great getaway to Tybee Island and loved our stay in Gull Cottage! It was a short trip, but got to enjoy several Tybee Wine Festival events, run a 5k, and ride bikes all over the island! Another excellent trip to Tybee!

Our stay was wonderful - we loved the privacy that Gull Cottage afforded us. The cottage itself was just perfect for an anniversary getaway. The historic significance was one of the things that drew us to stay in the cottage with the lovely old floors, walls and ceilings. Everything we needed was there in the cottage, we only had to shop for food! Would recommend this sweet place to anyone wanting privacy and quaintness.

Perfect Honeymoon! May 2017
Best Honeymoon experience! The cottage was perfect! We brought our kayak and launched it right from the cottage! We kayaked straight across the river to Little Tybee Island. We were able to walk and explore the island and work our way through beautiful marshes. We saw fish, birds, turtles and dolphin! The sunset at Cockspur Lighthouse was incredible! We can't say enough about the kindness of staff. Communication was impeccable! Love this cottage and Tybee! ~ Missy &Ted

we absolutely loved the cottage. stepping out the door a few feet over the Dune being on the back River Inlet and not a very far walk down to the ocean. Tybee Island is such a pretty place little shops, the pier there's nothing we didn't like. the restaurants in the area serve very good food and everybody we encountered were very friendly. chances are good that we will be back.

I visit Tybee twice a year but this is my first stay at Gull Cottage. I love this part of the island and was pleasantly surprised by how private the cottage is even though it's right at the fishing pier and next to the main house. Very peaceful! The cottage is lovely, just right for one or two people, and has everything you need. I will definitely consider Gull again. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

We were very happy with the privacy and the security. The beach is just outside the door. This our first visit to Tybee Island and when we come back we will want to stay in Gull Cottage.

Fourth of July Stay 2016
I'm no stranger to Tybee, and my stay at Gull Cottage reminded me of why I still love my little Island. The Cottage is perfect for two, with a great updated kitchen, a small bathroom/laundry combo and a beautiful living and sleeping space. There's a gorgeous view of the Backriver and a perfect deck to enjoy mornings and evenings outdoors. While located right next to the Fishing Pier, the trees offer privacy and create a lovely atmosphere. You're just steps from the beach- we enjoyed long days on the beach and magnificent star-filled nights as well! We could not have asked for more! Thank you, TVR, for a wonderful and easy break on Tybee.

We booked this cottage as our honeymoon destination and it was beyond anything we could have imagined. Its conveniently placed at the southern part of tybee near the strand and Tybrisa St. Everything was in walking distance or if we needed to drive north it was about a 15 minute drive. The cottage over all was more than enough room for the two of us and extremely homey. We booked jn the off season so it was quiet and relaxing. We hope to be jn Tybee again soon!

We had a wonderful time at Gull Cottage and Tybee! Loved the private beach and all the dolphins!!! Never get tired of seeing the dolphins up close and the sea life! Always amazing! The cottage was a perfect size for 2 people however wish there was a shelf or cupboard in bathroom. Getting ready to go out to dinner was kind of a pain. And maybe a dresser instead of the table. The cottage has a gas grill and not charcoal as advertised but overall it really was a great time. Will definitely be back!

We enjoyed our time at Gull Cottage, the only problem is that it was too short. It was the perfect size for 2 and the best location on Tybee. I pulled my kayak from the driveway to the beach.

We stayed in the Gull Cottage it was great, we were on our honeymoon and the cottage was the perfect fit for us. I loved the history of the cottage and the fact you could sit in chairs and see the inlet and the Atlantic meet. It is perfect walking distance to downtown, and a to the ocean. We will be back and stay in the Gull Cottage for sure. I would highly recommend this place for a couple how would like a romantic getaway in Tybee.

Love!
Second time staying. Love the cottage! In a great location within walking distance to main strip. The only thing I would say that I would like to have is better lighting! Inside has two little lamps that give not a lot of light inside, there is a fan light but it’s too much. Also maybe a side table for the bed. Also a guide for the tv channels, we had to stay in a day due to rain and there wasn’t a lot to choose from. Can totally overlook those things when you have such a great view and so much to do. Would definitely return!
